Program Overview

Diabetes Mellitus is a disease that can cause complications throughout the body. This session will explain the complications that most commonly occur, how you can recognize them at the earliest stages and how they can be treated. Early recognition leads to better outcomes. With good management of your diabetes, many of these complications can be delayed or avoided altogether.

Some of the complications of diabetes, like tingling in your feet or increased urination at night, are easy to notice. Other complications are not obvious, such as glaucoma and high blood pressure. It is a good approach to have a list of potential problems to talk about with your doctor when you have a doctor's appointment. This program will help you to know more about possible problems and complications and bring you news about the latest new developments in keeping diabetes under control.
